The new website, BillMoyers.com, appears to very carefully censor 9/11 comments posted to the site. The following comment was posted to the site almost 4 days ago and has yet to appear. The comment was received by the site because, just after posting it the message, "Comment will be posted after review.[sic]" appeared in the comments section. There has been one 9/11 comment posted to the site with essentially the same message, but with less technical detail than the comment shown here.
A wonderful article...as far as it goes. In the Moyer's video interview of Mr. Lofgren about this article, Bill made certain to state that the ideas expressed here are not about conspiracy theories. It appears that while Mike has awakened slowly to the existence of the Deep State, he has yet to acknowledge that there are actors in that ideological group that can and will do anything to sustain its power. Witness the threat to the deep state organization that the ending of the cold war represented. Suddenly, there was no one to be the "Great Satan" to justify deep state control. As if by magic, an event came along and reversed the deep state's loss of power, 9/11 recreated a Great Fear Society. Lofgren cannot avoid obliquely acknowledging here the dramatic change of the deep state's grasp of power after 9/11.
It's been a long while since I posted on 911Blogger, but I have tried to keep up with important developments on 911, courtesy of this website and others.
I recently released a new doc entitled "Counter-Intelligence" ('Shining a light on black operations'). Like my previous films it has been released online for free.
Counter-Intelligence (CI) is long. Six hours. It is divided up into five parts. Each entry can be viewed as its own entity without reference to what comes before or after. Obviously the film as a whole is best viewed in its entirety from 1-5.
The full film can be viewed here:
Due to the length I composed a trailer, which also functions as a sort of short film. It is 15 minutes long:
Government of the Shadows: Parapolitics and Criminal Sovereignty (Hardcover)
Government of the Shadows analyses the concept of clandestine government. It explores how covert political activity and transnational organised crime are linked -- and how they ultimately work to the advantage of state and corporate power. The book shows that legitimate government is now routinely accompanied by extra-governmental covert operations. Using a variety of case studies, from the mafia in Italy to programmes for food and reconstruction in Iraq, the contributors illustrate that para-political structures are not 'deviant', but central to the operation of global governments. The creation of this truly parallel world-economy, the source of huge political and economic potential, entices states to undertake new forms of regulation, either through their own intelligence agencies, or through the more shadowy world of criminal cartels.

PART 1: THEORETICAL PERSPECTIVES
I don't mind using three words -- "the deep state" in a sentence; it would be fearful cowards like the Associated Press who cannot use those three words in a sentence. Yet I would allow that the deep state is difficult to write about. It is a shadowy and ill-defined thing, subject to much speculation and conjecture. To avoid stepping off the deep end into conspiracy theories, we must stick to information that is solid, rather than sketchy.
On Election Night 2008, commentator Tom Morris, the host of Capitol Hill Blues, appeared on the Real News and said,
Somewhere between George Bush and Noam Chomsky, who believe the 9/11 Commission Report, and David Ray Griffin, who believes "the Bush-Cheney administration orchestrated 9/11" (Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11, 2006, p. vii-viii, ), there is Peter Dale Scott.
Scott doesn't say who did it, but as Ola Tunander puts it,
"Peter Dale Scott exposes a shadow world of oil, terrorism, drug trade and arms deals, of covert financing and parallel security structures – from the Cold War to today. He shows how such parallel forces of the United States have been able to dominate the agenda of the George W. Bush Administration, and that statements and actions made by Vice President Cheney and Defense Secretary Rumsfeld before, during and after September 11, 2001, present evidence for an American "deep state" and for the so-called "Continuity of Government" in parallel to the regular "public state" ruled by law. Scott"s brilliant work not only reveals the overwhelming importance of these parallel forces but also presents elements of a strategy for restraining their influence to win back the "public state," the American democracy."
